With the pleasure of viewing the beautifully remastered Blu Ray edition, it gave me more of an idea of what to do.
If your a purist, I suggest you ignore this thread and stick with your official copy.
I am sticking with the idea of using the Kostal recordings.
The Centaur scene will stayed zoomed, I actually thought it looked less distracting zoomed in on this release. Sorry, I feel something that racially negative isn't worth the effort in salvaging. Maybe if Disney produced the scene, but I agree with their decision to cut it in the 60's.
I will cut the film around the original Deems Taylor dialogue. Corey Burton will not be a part of the film. Even if it is closer to the roadshow version. I prefer consistency over historical accuracy.
Essentially this is the 1991 edit and dialogue, with 2010 picture, and 1984 re-recorded soundtrack.
I hope to be able to release it in 1080p, but it will take a while. I am going shoot for a job soon. Give me a break, I'm practically a kid, especially when Frink is in the room.
I won't be working on it for a while. It seems like I'm scrapping it, but I'm not. This thing would be out right now if my computer could handle it.
Sorry to be frank, but this is how I want it to be. I plan on posting a trailer sometime in the future. It won't be the finished product, but it will give you an idea of how it will look.
I will also exclude bonus content, and deleted scenes. If you want to watch them, they are on the official release which you should hopefully have if you plan on getting a hold of this release.

"The other versions will disappear. Even the 35 million tapes of Star Wars out there won’t last more than 30 or 40 years. A hundred years from now, the only version of the movie that anyone will remember will be the DVD version [of the Special Edition], and you’ll be able to project it on a 20’ by 40’ screen with perfect quality. I think it’s the director’s prerogative, not the studio’s to go back and reinvent a movie." - George Lucas
